I'm a writer/director of shorts and looking to make my first feature. I've done a bit of everything: colour grading, editing, art dept, writing, camera, sound design - helps a lot when you're working on a low budget!
My first love is writing – I have a First Class Honours Degree in Visual Arts and Writing, and wrote two novels during that time. I've published non-fiction for other authors, but don't do much of that now, in favour of focussing on my film projects.
I'm also freelance web designer, working for small and large companies.
As a screenwriter I've adapted a pre-World War Two thriller/drama novel for a production company, an action/horror and a sci-fi time travelling project.
I'm working on five of my own feature projects - all with themes of supernatural/horror. Currently writing a ghost no-budget crime/horror featuring mainly one character and location.

Film (short) by Katherine King (Horror) Director In a gory homage to the 80's teen-slasher flicks, Waste Disposal is a scary urban legend. Emma (Julie Grant - Solitude) is getting ready for a wild night out with the girls, but the far from normal friendly-neighbourhood serial-killer Mr X (Rob Talbot - Season of the Witch; Dementia) is about to change all that. Taking advantage of an opportunist moment, he attacks Emma and uses his new waste disposal unit to dispose of the evidence in a way that is sure to void the Warranty. WASTE DISPOSAL is a dark, disturbing little shocker with a brutal twist in the tale that will have you sleeping with the lights on - and never be able to have a bath by yourself again.

Regardless, John's death bed wish is for Danny to take over the family business and make it legitimate. Part of that entails Danny marrying Anika Nowak, the daughter of one of John's associates, Louis Nowak.
